"People who think TTs are boring should find another sport to watch" - Miguel Indurain

Cyclist reached out to five-time Tour de France champion Miguel Indurain to chat about time trials and winning Tour de France these days.

Indurain states that he's not jealous of the technologies riders have access to nowadays. "No, because you’ve got to have all the physical qualities – you can’t buy them. If you don’t have the engine you haven’t got anything. All the gains from aerodynamics and technology are added extras. Also, we had the best equipment that was available to us at that time, and I was happy with it."

The former Olympic champion against the clock also talks about trend of reducing time trial kilometers. "It’s a shame because time-trials are a sport within a sport and a really important part of cycling that takes as much mental skill as physical. People who think TTs are boring should find another sport to watch."

"Vingegaard will be the favourite because he won it last year, but any of those other riders could cause him problems. It will be a very open race and there may even be a surprise winner," Indurain concludes with his point of view on this year's GC battle.
